    I've been having quite a few requests lately from my members - they would like to have a mobile app to post images directly from their phone. I'm going to take the pluge and add one of the mobile forum apps to tbmotoring.com

    I'm debating between Tapatalk and Forum Runner. Can anyone give me your expiriences with each and which you prefer? I have not used either - however off the batt, Tapatalk has an edge because it's compatible with Blackberrys as well as iOS and Android.

    Are either of these also compatible with vbAdvanced? I'm using it for my home page.

    Warm regards,

    Marc

    What do you use on AT? I noticed your sig sometimes reads "Sent from my LG-VM696 using Admin Talk Forums"

    I have them both installed on my community. Some use forum runner and others use Tapatalk, but TapaTalk seems to be used a lot more though.

    Thanks @benjaminp
    I've changed the signature up on my phone. (hmm, apparently it didn't change..lol)
    As soon as I get some images done I'll promote it more. :)

    Can anyone point out some of the major differences between the two?

    What became of the project? I've just tried the AT branded app, :cool: , but didn't find a way to log in. Regular Tapatalk (2) works though. ;)

    I only use Tapatalk 2, I don't know how many people actually use forumrunner.

    Since IB took over Forum Runner it's not really even worth debating which one to use anymore.
